This newsletter will provide you with a bi-weekly intention, new skill, or practice to work on to better your overall experience with various mental health-related platforms - thoughts, emotions, behaviours, relationships & most importantly, your relationship to yourself. All dizzily inspired by spirituality, energetics, Buddhism, among other philosophies and approaches that resonate with my tree-hugging and hippie spirit; backed by neuroscience, evidence-based practices, and psychosomatics. Best of both worlds. Subscribe below!
Shine Psychotherapy & Mindfulness provides a holistic approach to the mind and body. Holistic psychotherapy considers the whole person - mind, body, spirit - and the intersectionality of social identities - race, gender, social class, physical ability - in the treatment of imbalance, discomfort, trauma, and various difficulties.
Cultivate safety and comfort to allow your authentic self to shine.

We realize how now more than ever, support is essential.
“it was when I stopped searching for home within others and lifted the foundations of home within myself I found there were no roots more intimate than those between a mind and body that have decided to be whole.”
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom. -V. Frankl
